DEL CARLO, Ricardo Junqueira et al. Experimental peritoneal adhesions in dogs. A macroscopic study. Cienc. Rural [online]. 1997, vol.27, n.2, pp.273-278. ISSN 1678-4596.

This research was performed in order to study the adhesion formation induced by injury to the peritoneum at the time of surgery. In the present study ischemia by ligation appears to be the most potent adhesiogenic factor. Serosal injury and drying and the lesions cauterized by electric cautery were forms of serosal injury that induced fibrinous or irreversible adhesions. Adhesions were stimulated when drying was combined with rubbing the tissue with dry gauze. The combinant drying with fibrin enhanced the inicial adhesion. Comparing the four factors, serosal injury was posibly the least likely to cause adhesions. In this type of injury the fibrinolitic mechanism was not inhibited.
